The February Patch Tuesday will be in March

Microsoft confirmed that the updated versions (Patch ) this month will be delayed and that they will take place in March due to a last minute bug.

Originally, Microsoft announced that it had decided to delay the release of Patch Tuesday due to issues it did not want to reveal, and although some believed that all patches would be released next Tuesday, the company probably has other plans.

Microsoft is reportedly releasing all updates to the next Patch Tuesday that will take place on March 14.

“We will be rolling out updates as part of the scheduled of March on Tuesday, March 14, 2017,” the company said today, without providing any other information about what went wrong.

“Our first priority is to provide the best possible experience to our customers in maintaining and of their systems. This month, we discovered at the last minute an issue that could affect some customers and was not resolved in time for our scheduled upgrade. After considering all the options, we decided to delay this month's updates. We apologize for the inconvenience caused by "Microsoft said in the initial announcement.

Let's mention that the delay of Patch Tuesday until March of 2017 means that the company's systems will be vulnerable to SMB (zero-day) vulnerability whose exploit has already been posted on the Internet.

In accordance with US-CERT, the SMB flaw already being exploited by cyber criminals, and there is no effective solution to protect 100 per cent.

Χωρίς κάποιο patch από τη Microsoft, οι χρήστες θα παραμείνουν ευάλωτοι για ένα μήνα ακόμη. Οι ειδικοί αναφέρουν σαν προσωρινό μέτρο τον αποκλεισμό των εξερχόμενων συνδέσεων SMB (στις θύρες TCP 139 και 445 και τις θύρες UDP 137 και 138), από το τοπικό δίκτυο WAN.
